QTC Hotels Ltd Equity and the Law of Trusts
Module Title: Equity and the Law of Trusts
QTC Hotels Ltd is seeking to expand its international chain of hotels and is looking to purchase a hotel in Brazil for £15m from Rio de Janeiro Hotels SA. Given the complexity of buying property abroad QTC Hotels was assisted in the purchase by Brazilian Investment Advice Ltd (BIA). BIA acted as both an intermediary and consultant. However, unknown to QTC, BIA had a secret arrangement with Rio de Janeiro Hotels to the effect that the latter would pay BIA £1.5m as a result of selling the hotel.
QTC has subsequently discovered the payment of the secret commission and seeks to recover the £1.5m. However, on receipt of the money BIA invested it into two separate ventures. The first, Brazilian Rubber Industries SA failed and the whole £800,000 investment was lost. The second, was considerably more successful and the £700,000 initial investment into Sao Paulo Industries SA is now worth £2.1m.
You are to advise the company secretary of QTC Hotels on what basis, if any, they might make a claim against BIA.
